Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word stochastic gradient descent.


  1. Stochastic gradient descent

    Stochastic gradient descent (often shortened to SGD), also known as incremental gradient descent, is an iterative method for optimizing a differentiable objective function, a stochastic approximation of gradient descent optimization. A 2018 article implicitly credits Herbert Robbins and Sutton Monro for developing SGD in their 1951 article titled "A Stochastic Approximation Method"; see Stochastic approximation for more information. It is called stochastic because samples are selected randomly (or shuffled) instead of as a single group (as in standard gradient descent) or in the order they appear in the training set.
